Switched

Throne of the God-Pharaoh for Nissa of Shadowed Boughs

Trying this Nissa out, it can get any of my combo creatures from hand or grave and can ramp a bit.

Wickerbough Elder for Assassin's Trophy

More efficient and cheap removal, Elder is too clunky

Swiftfoot Boots for Veil of Summer

Better overall card and protection

Cauldron of Souls for Phyrexian Reclamation

Cheaper cost for similar effect, I like the Cauldron with a sac outlet but i'm really trying to lower my curve!

What do you think of those changes!?

Beseech the Queen for Fiend Artisan

did you think of Cauldron of Souls? I like the idea and that would increase the use if you could get from Grumgully's ability, especially good counter to board wipes for your nontoken creatures

Massacar Decree of Silence is definitely going into the deck. Because why should anyone but me get to play the game lol? A bit pricey, but it's not too over my budget and probably won't be too hard finding a deal on. Dark Depths is a card I forgot existed, but between it and Decree, I'll probably opt for Decree. Will definitely keep it in mind, though, and might use it in my online builds if anything. Cauldron of Souls is neat, but sadly the creatures given Persist lose it after they return to the battlefield. Still, if I have enough creatures on board I'm probably not going to sacrifice the same creature anyway.

saluma That's fine, I think the people I played with already hated me anyway because of Yawgmoth lol. I definitely wouldn't mind building this deck in such a way that it becomes very hard to successfully resolve anything and advance your gameplan, but I'd still like it to be as proactive as possible so I'm not just standing on a back leg the whole time. I like a lot of the cards you mentioned, particularly the first 4.

Omniscience_is_life Aphetto Alchemist and Minamo, School at Water's Edge are the best of these due to low to no cost and free or low activation requirements. I would prefer to have free untap effects, that way I still have mana open for Ertai's ability.

RiotRunner789 Hexmage is cool, though I do wish it was a repeatable effect. That might have been broken if it was, though. Anyway, were I to go Aristocrats, what cards would you recommend that sacrifice for value? I have a Yawgmoth Aristo deck, but that essentially runs solely off of Yawgmoth, Thran Physician. Additionally, I think wheel effects might be preferable to mill effects, especially since in these colors I can use stuff like Notion Thief to ruin everyone's day.

And yes, I was definitely going to include Ertai's Meddling in the deck for the flavor AND utility. The best kind of flavor inclusions, really: stuff that's in theme and that's actually effective on its own.

SynergyBuild Very cool post! I was initially thinking of making this an enchantment-based deck, but I couldn't really find a lot of worthwhile enchantments that provide immediate value or value when they leave the field. They also seem fairly hard to recur; Heliod's Hall and Hanna, Ship's Navigator are the only two cards I can think of that let's you consistently recur them. I looked at the Enchantment Creatures as well, but... a lot of those kind of suck lol. Do you have any other enchantment suggestions of the kind you mentioned? Maybe a list I could look at for ideas?

I definitely didn't want to just make this a counter on a stick kind of deck, which is why I wanted to take this in a reanimator/theft direction so that I'm always doing something each turn.

I think overall, I'd like this to be primarily a reanimator deck with an aristocrats subtheme, but I'm definitely open to many other suggestions seeing how this commander is pretty foreign to me. Tried to build him a long time ago, actually, but it sucked. Now that I'm (hopefully) a better deck builder, I'm trying my hand at it again.
